The outfitters' camp that surrounds Auberge du Lac-à-l’Eau-Claire contains no fewer than 10 trout fishing lakes. Whether you're a beginner, recreational, or experienced angler, we have a fishing package to suit you thanks to 150,000 rainbow and brook (speckled) trout that are stocked in the lakes every year. This is Quebec fishing at its best.
In so far as weather conditions allow, the first day of trout fishing season may be announced as early as May 1. You will thus enjoy ideal conditions, far from the sweltering heat of summer. Although fishing on Lac-à-l’Eau-Claire typically ends in early September, the season can sometimes go as late as October on some of the smaller lakes.
The season for lake trout on the other hand runs a bit later, kicking off on June 1. Every year, a few fishermen – whether they're patient, talented, or just plain lucky – manage to reel in a few trophy fish weighing over 20 pounds. The lake trout fishing season ends on September 1.
Even if you're getting lucky and the fish are biting, bear in mind that you must always abide by the trout fishing quotas:
- 10 brook trout
- 10 rainbow trout
- 2 lake trout
- "Wooly bugger" flies are indispensable when fishing for rainbow trout. Whether on the large Lac-à-l’Eau-Claire or on the smaller lakes, using these flies will increase your odds of success.
- To lure in lake trout, we recommend a sinking line, a don reger, wooly bugger fly, a meter long Davis rosary or a blue, fluorescent or yellow rapala (20-30 cm).
- This species, which spends most of its time lurking at depths of around 200 feet, is not an easy target. Anyone who manages to hook one deserves bragging rights.
